You may be starting to sniff summer in the air, but you are going to fall head over heels for this gorgeous winter wedding. Classic winter colours are picked up in key features – from the emerald green bridesmaid dress to the bridal bouquet of eucalyptus, white roses, white and blue thistles and ferns – and create a dream-like atmosphere, illuminated by candles and crisp winter light. This truly is one to savour, so grab a coffee (or a glass of wine; it is nearly the weekend after all) and pore over this perfect day.
Cripps Barn is just made for winter weddings. Huge fireplaces, lots of nooks for an abundance of candles and cosy spaces for dining once night falls…it really is a magical place. Gorgeous Bride Jessica looks divine in a minimal, sophisticated gown by Stewart Parvin and her bridesmaids in cornflower blue skirts are SO on trend. This look is universally flattering and we think blue is set to be huge for bridesmaids next year (our very own founder Charlotte O’Shea said so on our podcast)!
The dreamy images come from David Jenkins who shoots regularly at Cripps, and you can really tell. Everything feels so natural and beautiful, and that winter light is just breathtaking!
We hope you’re ready for some Christmas cheer because you’ll find it in its droves at this blush pink Winter wedding. But first, we HAVE to talk about beautiful bride Ashley’s customised faux fur coverup. I mean seriously what’s not to love. In fact, her whole bridal look with organza Justin Alexander gown, Prada shoes, and red lipstick makes her look like an absolute siren. Created by the lovely Poppy Tallulah, who is a member of our handpicked wedding directory ‘The List’.
The fabulous fashion choices continue with the groomsmen donning back tie suits and the bridesmaids in sparkly tops and separate skirts. Matching their attire beautifully are the stunning decor and florals. My fav being the fabulous advent calendar table plan. What a lovely idea. And talking of ideas, this Christmas wedding is full of them. Be sure you read on so you don’t miss all the Christmas songs sung during the ceremony, and their genius idea for wedding favours.
Behind the lens today is the lovely Lemonade Pictures, who always manages to put a smile on our faces with her captures.
If you’re having a winter wedding, embracing the season is a great place to start when it comes to styling. But it doesn’t all have to be Christmas trees, crackers and twinkling fairy lights.
This fun and festive shoot from super-creative Charlotte at La Fete, shot at the dreamy Penton Park, shows that seasonal styling can still be fresh and unique. From the mitten shaped place-names, to the gingerbread house (!) the whole shoot is just pure joy.
If you’re having a winter wedding, using blue can sometimes feel scary, as it can be a very cold colour. But chose a soft and delicate shade like cornflower blue, and pair it with gold accents and soft pink tones, and you have a beautiful colour palette that feels seasonal, but warm. Think winter sunrises – that perfectly crisp cold light of a clear blue sky, tinged with the delicate pink warmth of the low sun. This gorgeous inspiration shoot brings this colour palette to life at wonderful Sennowe Park Norfolk, where the buildings and grounds are just so beautiful, it felt like a shame not to use them for a winter wedding.
Images come from Salsbil Morrison whose dreamy style is just beautiful, I’ve lost myself not only in this shoot, but also in her Instagram feed. Check out her photography style further on her website, if you like what you see!
This beautiful Christmas wedding is giving me all the excited tingles for the big day. Not only is it SO stylishly festive and full of joy, but it’s also a great reminder that a wedding doesn’t have to be a lavish affair. A simple candle lit ceremony followed by a family meal at the pub is just as special, perhaps even more so. The love just radiates from these images by Rebecca Searle.
If you’re planning a winter wedding then make sure you visit our archives for even more inspiration. We’ve even got a couple of other wintery pub weddings (this and this) as gorgeous as Rachael and Chris’ big day. Enjoy loves, this is a very special wedding indeed…
It’s time to snuggle around the fire for this beautiful Winter wedding at Cripps Barn Cotswolds wedding venue. Beautifully filled with candlelight, foliage and a little sprinkling of snow. Dare I say it, it’s making us feel a little festive! Adding to the decor and ambience are the fabulous Wonderland Invites in house wedding stationery designs, plus hundreds of twinkly fairy lights.
Bringing the heat is Allison and Huw in their stylish wedding attire. Allison looks exquisite in a beaded lace Annsual Y Violet gown, and Huw looks oh so dapper in Suit Supply and a double breast waistcoat. Together they have made Alexandra Jane Photography‘s job at capturing all the love a dream.
For those of you currently planning a winter wedding, this sumptuous occasion will most definitely get you excited. Sarah is a designer, one of the duo behind the gorgeous Hope & Ivy (whose dresses the whole RMW team were swooning over) and so naturally her big day is just beautiful. The gorgeous bridesmaids dresses were designed by Sarah and you can shop a similar style here 🙂
A Yorkshire couple living in London, Sarah and Alex were determined to get married in the Dales and show their London friends the beauty of the surroundings. They even had their blessing at the family church.
All of the magic has been captured by Carla Blain in her dreamy, dark and dramatic style. Let’s take a look shall we?
A little festive cheer for us all this cold lunchtime – in the form of Charlotte and James’ cosy winter wedding at The West Mill Derby. We always love a stylish winter wedding, there’s no need to go hard on the tinsel just because your wedding coincides with Christmas. Foliage, sparkly lights and an elegant wreathe are all you need.
Images come from the lovely Chris and Anii at Bloom Weddings, who have captured some truly gorgeous shots. I always love seeing things from a different perspective on the big day and if you look carefully through this edit you’ll see some really thoughtful images. Oh and two last things – Charlotte’s HAIR. She also changed into her slippers for the party. I think I love her…
